The recent national math redesign movement has focused on reducing the amount of time spent in developmental math courses. Now, more than ever, researchers are putting an emphasis on how students’ affective characteristics affect learning and grades, especially in math courses. These characteristics include math study skills, test anxiety reduction, motivation and persistence.
